Housing in Ethiopia

BGW Housing and Construction

Donate to help transform lives


In Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, poor families barely earn enough to feed themselves, so they rarely have the funds to repair their crumbling mud houses or leaky roofs.

This is an even greater hardship for those who are elderly or disabled, and what’s more, their homes typically lack any accommodation for their special physical needs — for example, many houses can’t be entered using a wheelchair. These living conditions are unsafe, unsanitary and undignified, so local Church leaders have created a plan to end this suffering. Your gift will help the Brothers of Good Works repair homes and build wheelchair ramps for families in desperate circumstances. Please, give these families the miracle they need!

Financial Accountability

At Cross Catholic, we meticulously honor the intent of our donors. All proceeds are restricted for the specific project for which they are raised. In that rare event that more funds are received than are required for a specific project, the additional funds will be used to meet the most urgent needs.

Fundraising & Administrative Expenses 5.82%
More than 94 percent of all organizational expenses, including donated goods, went directly to programs that help the poor.
Audited Financials FY2022

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures incurred through June 30, 2024, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
